Ooh, Joel and Mandy! I loved the anger and the arguments between them. The revelations that the holiday revealed about the characters were packed with oomph. The first half of the book gave us the setup and this nicely balanced out against the action packed second half.
The holiday rental made the perfect backdrop for the story and I enjoyed the tensions as they unfolded. There were shock moments aplenty in this thrilling read. ‘Shattered Lives’ is a twisty turny book that will keep you right on your tippy toes!
Thanks for reading!
